Brock, Bachmanhuff Named to NSCAA Mid-Atlantic All-Region Team
KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Junior Megan Brock and sophomore Ellen Bachmanhuff of the Swarthmore College women's soccer team have been named to the NSCAA Mid-Atlantic All-Region Team, the organization announced on Wednesday. Brock is a first-team selection while Bachmanhuff made the second team.
Both are all-region selections for the first time in their careers. They are the 12th and 13th women's soccer student-athletes to receive all-region accolades since 2006.
A native of Long Beach, Calif, Brock was the Garnet's top midfielder for the 2012 season. Brock, who recently earned a spot on the All-Centennial Conference First Team, finished the season with four goals and two assists, both of which rank fourth on the team. Brock's biggest goal of the season came in a 1-0 victory over conference-rival Dickinson, which solidified the Garnet's spot in the Centennial playoffs.
Bachmanhuff (South Bend, Ind./St. Joseph's) was the top defender for a Garnet defense that allowed just 0.60 goals per game. She was the centerpiece of a three back system that ranks as the third best defensive unit of all time at Swarthmore since the program's inception in 1982. Bachmanhuff, who also earned a spot on the All-Centennial Conference First Team, was the only non-senior defender on the first or second team.
With Brock and Bachmanhuff leading the way, the Garnet finished the 2012 season with a 13-6-2 overall record, reaching the semifinals of the Centennial Conference and ECAC South Region playoffs.
